    Post Halfling village

    Here's my current project. A halfling village with some human buildings.
    I'm going to add trees an brush and etrances to the hobbit-burrows and a field or two. Most of the terrain will be forested over, so the texture will be hidden. And i will add some sand banks to the stream
    What do you think?

    Excellent. Would you be able to donate this map to the CWBP when its done. I was looking for one just like this for a map of Hafton Shire on my CWBP tile.

    In this post are two images. The one on the right shows a path out of Fentor Cross and then there is a track north finishing at the foot of the Fentor Hills. On the image you can see half of the letters H and S for Hafton Shire.

    Sure I can donate it. Didn't really see where it was supposed to go, but I'll look into it. I haven't taken the time to look the CWBP over yet, but I will

    Ok. almost done. Just putting it up here to see if anyone got any input before i mark it final.
    I considered fields, but decided against it.
    The story makes this the capital of sorts in the halfling sub-province and the town collects taxes from the surrounding farms and villages, mostly in the form of sheep, cattle, grain and veggies. They have some small coralls surrounded by old overgrown fences (the bushrows) for keeping the cattle before sending it off to Burgenos. One of the characters in the campaign is the son of the halfling chief (lives in the Folius clan estate). The group are going to go visit the halflings and find out that some goblins are stealing the cattle from nearby farms. Later they will find a shield made from a pice of dragon egg. The gobbos are stealing cattle to feed two young red dragons that they've found.
    Dragonhunting for fun and profit. Will make a similar map over the gobbo encampent and dragon cave up in the mountain.

    Very nice map!

    One comment though, if I may: I think the forest/trees are quite overwhelming and the viewer has difficulty focusing on the village.

    Also, what's your scale?

    Great work Hoel!

    My only very, very minor nitpick is that the numbers on the buildings, etc. are very difficult to read (at least for me).
